    Umm what do you mean, you really need iTunes to manage your iPhone even on Mac.

    Install iTunes, this will install the Apple USB drivers for devices and Bonjure controllers. Then connect your iPhone. Go to My computer and right click on the iPhone, select import pictures. Done.

    Windows sees the iPhone as a digital camera.

    Make sure you have the most up to date version of itunes installed. When you plug your iPhone in, you should get a little popup window asking what program you want to use to view the files on your device. Or you can just go to your file explorer, where you'll see your iPhone as a drive and you can transfer your photos from there.

    One thing also, be sure you have the correct version of iTunes, 32 bit or 64 bit, for your OS (some manufacturers are putting 64bit Windows on new systems). Only noticeable difference between the two is the drivers. My work laptop (Win7 64bit) recognizes the iPhone with no issues, once 64bit iTunes is installed.

    Maybe it's your usb cord? The drivers are in iTunes (it's a package deal).

    Got to be something bizarre with your computer, cause I have it working fine on two laptops with Win7 here, 1 32 bit and 1 64 bit.

    Could it be cuz of the phone being jail broke ?

    Is there any other way of getting pics off the phone on mas or with iTunes ?

    It's got nothing to do with it being jailbroken. My iPhone is also jailbroken.

    Plug your iPhone into someone else's computer that does recognize your iPhone (don't sync, just connect it), and when it's recognized, copy your photos off it that way.

    One of my computers is running Win 7, upgrade from Vista. I have iTunes on it.

    When I attach the iPhone it shows up both in iTunes and in "Computer." However, when I click on it in Computer, all I see is 7G of free storage, that is what shows as 'free' in iTunes. Win 7 does not see it as a camera the way that XP did.

    thats a plan . iv just stuck it into another pc and loading pics on to a memory stick , i spos this will do for the time being but what a pain . thanks for all your help .

    im wondering if someone could go in there files and find the driver and email me it , or can i down load itunes to a disc and then tell win 7 to look on the disc for it .

    or is it possible iv not got window explorer on this win 7 ?

    how do you get you new pics from the phone to the pc mate ?

    cuz window 7 wont recolonize it none of the programs that would inport them will see it

    on xp window will offer to copy them when you plug in and i ges win 7 would if only i could get the drivers for the phone from somewhere .

    It works on Windows 7. Just as others have mentioned, reinstall Itunes... make sure you get the right one 32bit or 64bit.
